Kami Garcia, Beautiful Creatures

“His eyes softened. I thought maybe he pitied me, but it was something else. "Ultimately, it will be your burden to bear. It's always the Mortal who bears it. Trust me, I know."

"I don't trust you and you're wrong. We aren't too different."

Kami Garcia, Beautiful Creatures

“A story has its purpose and its path. It must be told correctly for it to be understood.”
